Shows that are hard to follow

Helix is pretty confusing and full of wtf-ness but the show I have the hardest time following is Lost Girl. I've watched all of the new episodes this season and am pretty confused. I feel like I missed half a season or something but as far as I know I haven't missed anything.

I've had that exact same feeling about Lost Girl.

Lost Girl has definitely taken a strange turn this season. I'm not enjoying it as much as I had in the past.

When I think of shows from the past that were hard to follow, Alias immediately comes to mind.

Either Black Sails is really confusing, or I'm just too bored by it to pay attention.

Agree on "Black Sails". I never finished watching the 3rd episode 'cause I was having a hard time understanding what's going on. They keep throwing around peoples names, ship names, port names, and there are many accents being spoken that I have a hard time even understanding what they're saying, let alone what they meaning of it all is.

I'm still recording the episodes and hope I get the inclination to try watching again.

I had problems following the goings on of "Boardwalk Empire", and eventually stopped watching that during the 2nd (3rd?) season.

No problems at all with Helix.

I don't find Black Sails hard to follow. I watch it with closed captions on and my thumb on the rewind button. There just isn't much *to* follow so far.

Game of Thrones, but, I still love the show. But you have to admit, that for those of us who haven't read the books, it's hard to follow the myriad of characters that move in and out of the story.

I think the thing with Lost Girl is they keep piling on mythology, but don't do anything to make it comprehensible to newer viewers (or viewers who aren't paying super close attention from week to week and season to season).
